TV cop show echoes Woods storyline

Terrence Howard is one of the stars of Law & Order: Los Angeles

Tiger Woods may want to skip this week’s episode of Law & Order: Los Angeles when it airs in the US.

The plot on the show includes a philandering golf star and his club-wielding wife. When police arrive, the bleeding athlete says his spouse was merely attempting to rescue him – in this case, from their swimming pool rather than a wrecked car.

After Tiger’s real-life car crash, in November last year, he acknowledged a string of infidelities and his marriage to Elin Nordegren unravelled.

The NBC crime drama goes in a very different direction, however, with detectives investigating the murder of a female golf pro.

The Law & Order LA franchise – starring Skeet Ulrich, Corey Stoll and Terrence Howard – is known for its ripped-from-the-headlines approach, but a series spokeswoman called the episode “strictly fiction”.
